Statistiques de Houle pour Cap Ferret, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Cap Ferret that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 34628 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NNW. The chart at the bottom shows the same thing but without direction information. For example, swells larger than 1.5 feet (0.5m) coincided with good wind conditions 36% of the time, equivalent to 131 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 0.3% of the time in a typical year, equivalent to just one day but 6% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 6%, equivalent to (22 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Cap Ferret is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Cap Ferret about 36% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 60% of the time. This is means that we expect 350 days with waves in a typical year, of which 131 days should be surfable.

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
